My neigbor is more equal than I am. They qualify for benefits I don't.It's like school. Everybody has the same chances to be honor roll
students. Some by their own efforts don't make it. Can't go blaming
the honor roll kids for their lower grades. Should a teacher take points from
the honor roll students and give it to the others?If a class
president was running for student body president, and promising equal grades for
all,--who would the lower grade students vote for?Conflict of
interest! Sorry, but we can all find success in this country.
To worf 8:29 a.m. Oct. 3, 2012So you are talking about establishing
Animal Farm in the United States -- all citizens are equal but some are more
equal than others. That is NOT the USA I know and love.While
we're talking about people having a "conflict of interest" and
therefore should not vote -- don't forget to include others who have a
conflict of interest -- military personnel, people who receive subsidies (oil
company personnel, banking interests, venture capital executives, and myriad
others who benefit in some way from decisions made by Congress and other levels
of government. If you eliminate everyone who arguably has a conflict of
interest, there would be nobody left to vote.The best way to handle
this issue is to make sure that everyone plays by the same rules. No priority
Two thirds of our school children qualify for free or reduced lunches.Because of a "conflict of interest", people on the dole should not
vote.Let those protecting the country have voting priority. --Smart
thinking Mitt! Very American.
Mitt is playing games again. The ballots have all been mailed, according to the
article. The voters have over a month to receive them, fill them out, and get
them mailed back. that's plenty of time to process them -- I don't
see why any type of extension is necesesary.I also think Fred44 is
right -- if Mitt is so concerned about people voting, the voter suppression
policies now rampant in the country should be reconsidered. Kudos to the
Pennsylvania court for blocking Pennsylvania's attempt, as the Governor
said, to use voter suppression to deliver the state to Romney. By how he
handles the attempt to keep eligible voters from voting, we will see whether
Romney wants all eligible voters to be able to vote, or just those who are
likely to vote for him. Somehow, given Mitt's predelictions, I think the
answer is clear -- he wants only those to vote who are likely to vote for him.
Business as usual for Mitt.
I agree with Mr. Romney on this position 100% (the first time in this election
cycle) and to show his concern for ALL American voters, I wish he would send
letters to Florida and Pennsylvania to ask them to reconsider their voter
suppression polices. If he did that then he truly would be looking out for all
Americans, not just a group he thinks will vote his way in battleground states.
What a nice olive branch to extend to the "victims" of the 47% he speaks
so un-highly of.
